An 83-year-old man, whose COVID-19 infection was linked to the Crossroads Hotel cluster, has died.

He is the first person to die from the virus since an 80-year-old woman died on May 21.

He is the 52nd COVID-19 fatality in NSW.

There have been 57 cases connected to the hotel in Sydney’s south-west.

NSW Health said the man died early this morning and extended condolences to his family.

The woman who died in May was the 50th death. Following that, however, an earlier death of an 85-year-old man in April was reclassified as COVID-19-related in late June, bringing the previous total to 51.

The health authority has reported 17 new cases in the 24 hours to 8:00pm yesterday.

Two cases attended the Apollo restaurant, bringing the Potts Point cluster to 24.

NSW has now recorded 3,567 confirmed cases.
